So i discovered a way to remove dark spots from my stainless steel silverware. I thought i could no longer use it due to it, and when my last spot free spoon became spotted, I decided to look it up. Apparently, if you make a paste with water and baking soda it removes them.

 

After a good hand washing, they (aka test spoon) look as good as new.

Hmmmm....

 

Patteigh is leaking (not my fault......anybody had a phlipover?)

Bughnee is bangin' Yeti

Emmm is a disappointed phlasher 

 

I'm still suffering the side effects of pneumonia. Better, but still tired. Gotta get a new chest x-ray in a couple of weeks.

 

And now the good news....

 

 

HAROLD IS GONE!!!!!!!!! :D

 

 

Let me explain.....( and I will start from the beginning for all the newer psillies).....I'll try to keep it as brief as possible

 

Four years ago this month my son came down with leukemia. It was soon realized that he also had a growth at his brain stem of unknown origin that was in danger of bursting.

 

I flew down to Houston to be with him and my husband rode his motorcycle down. <_< (I told him not to....I had a bad feeling)

 

(Now, I must add this part to give you the full effect of this life-changing event in our lives)......When he arrived in Houston, he was in an accident and lost his right leg below the knee. :o  I left my sons hospital to be with my husband at his hospital, returning a couple days later to find my son in a coma, which lasted 18 days. We almost lost my son during that time. :(

 

The doctors couldn't test the growth for fear of killing him so they couldn't find out what caused it. :unsure: They bombarded him with antibiotics, and either that or the chemo slowly shrunk the growth.....named Harold. :rolleyes:  It has still been around as a small, insignificant lesion since then. But now it is entirely gone. B)

 

My son went into remission near the end of that same year, but his numbers still have not been completely normal.

 

Well....his platelets are still a little low, but his white blood cell count is normal for the first time. ^_^

 

 

And then there's Harold..........farewell :)

11 year-old Son had negative blood panel, but went on gluten-free diet of his own volition to see if his concentration would improve, his temper abate, and his energy level would increase. Miraculous response!

Have been gluten free since April 2008. The only reason I did this was to make cooking at home easier since my husband has been a Celiac since 2000.

As to why I'm called Ward Girl only Nick and I know the reason :-)

Oh my goodness, you make my past health issues look like a cakewalk! Good riddance to Harold! You deserve all the good luck and happiness in the world (as do all our psillies)! They say that what doesn't kill us makes us strong and you must be Herculean at this point! I'm proud to know you (and all the heroes & heroines I've met here)! I'll continue to kep you all in my (very powerful) prayers!

 

Good Riddance Harold.

Pneumonia bad. Pleeeze take care of yourself!!!

Update: I've been offline due to a weird medical condition (what other kind do I get?). As some of you already knowI had a serious UTI that went undiagnosed for 3 weeks (hospital lost my paperwork) so I was on two different antibiotics for 12 days. I assumed my problems were a yeast infection but it turned out to be an allergic reaction to something. Needless to say sitting at the computer is uncomfortable. I can read email on my Kindle but for some reason my replies from there get lost. I had joined the YMCA and signed up for a water aerobics class but had to withdraw before it started. I can't wait to heal and start exercising again!!!!!

Rob had a good interview for a job yesterday. He would be trained to do Medical Monitoring during surgery. You're paid during training but have to work for them for a year after training is completed. He's up for another position that would pay a lot more but right now he's been unemployed for 19 months and needs to take what he can get. If the company that's comparable to the one he worked for in NJ (Wyeth) hires him he'll just pay back whatever they invested in him. He really wants us to get out of Westerly and head to Mass. When I was sick I didn't want to leave but now I'm totally on board. Obviously we would not be able to sell the house in this market but we can rent something small in Mass. and come here on the weekends until we can sell. Or, if we're lucky, the new company would buy the house as part of the relocation packet. The house in Westerly is beautiful but the memories suck! I'm not even sure he would trust another Pharmaceutical Company after our experience up here. He might just stick to the Medical Monitoring because it's a relatively new field.

 

Sooo ... I remain the eternal optimist and truly believe 2013 will be good for all of us!!!!

Sending healing (((hugs))), positive energy and love to you all! :wub: :wub:
Loey

P.S. Vincent, LOVE the video and look forward to the celiac disease. Will email you about the Lost Wiki when I can sit at the computer for more than 3 minutes :wacko:
